Rocket Man Project


[WIP image from the Rocket Man short film via their blog]

There is an awesome blog by a group of students doing their grad CG animation project - Rocket Man. The blog has contributions from the team which follow the progress of the project from its initial project planning and concept work, through story-boards, modelling, animation and more with progress reports and commentary. This is a great resource for how these projects work and shows us how a small team can pull off a great little video.

I love the modelling on the project, the landscape, bike and their texturing, lighting and character are great to see. If you check out the original boards, there were some nice ideas of blending the 'book' with the story as well which were edited out, but would make for a fun idea to see as well (with the balloon).

Make sure you watch the final video.
